Inspection Preparation: Safety & Systems Testing
System test results must be submitted to the Black Hawk Fire Department during annual inspection. These forms must be used by technician/owner to provide documentation of their system test results. The Black Hawk Fire Department must always be notified of impairments.
The Systems Testing Forms offer a guideline of the requirements for the type of testing and results that shall be documented. However, technician/owner and companies should ensure testing procedures and documentation meet requirements established in NFPA standards, and submit to the City of Black Hawk Fire Department reports as required by State law.

Permits & Plan Review Process
Construction Permits (Fire Sprinkler, Fire Alarm, Building, Kitchen Hood, etc.) are issued through the Community Planning & Development Department.
Upon request, Black Hawk Fire Department will meet with the applicant or designer/contractor before, during, and after the plan review to clarify and assist in bringing the plans into compliance.
Black Hawk Fire Department will then review all aspects of the project for conformance with the Fire Code as adopted by the City of Black Hawk. During the project, Black Hawk Fire Department will also review plan revisions and can conduct reviews of deferred submittals.
Plan review fees will be included in the permit fee. Fees will be assessed based on the City's Fee Schedule.
